                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ALJAFIR games.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 record 
which BODY OF MUSIC managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  BUNDY caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as he skillfully bested ULTRO PINKY and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, GIDJIT HAYES put down WHITEY, causing him to lose 
20 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has PING in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ALJAFIR.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in ALJAFIR.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a 
turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its 
prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Jorja -- Well, there is at least one thing we have in common on where we choose to
live.  Privacy.  At present I have only 4 employees living within 1.5 miles of me.
Definitely not a huge crowd.  Love it. -- Padre

Our congratulations to Ping. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

An oh-fer turn.  This is totally the pits.  I suppose I should be glad we didn't lose
to any standbys--we didn't FIGHT any standbys, where are they when we need them? --
Gidjit Hayes, for the Middle Way

Heck.  It's all of a piece, that's what it is.  The weather guessers are predicting
six inches of snow tonight, and a couple more inches tomorrow!  It's MARCH, for
pete's sake!  This has been a startling winter, though I *suppose* I should be glad
we didn't have an actual, all-out blizzard (we *did* have one a couple of years ago,
not fun).  Still, even if the groundhog was right (a stupid beast, what does HE know
about the weather?  But then, what do the official guessers know?), we've only got
two weeks of winter to go.  Spring about a week after daylight savings time--there's
a thrilling prospect. -- Jorja, muttering and grumbling
